Our first lager beer is brewed to the classic German style. Back in the day, brewers released this stronger beer to celebrate the start of fall brewing after hot summers. Now that we have high-tech refrigeration systems we brew all year, but still enjoy drinking Oktoberfest as the temps start to cool.

12oz can. Poured hazy brown with a thin head. Fresh spicy aroma. Bold fresh flavour lots of depth and malt character this beer has withstood the test of time. Great palate and depth very drinkable I like it.

Draft at Dark Horse, 11/17/15. Great win by my Terps! Clear orange color without much head or lace. Nice malty presence on a small hop note. Average carbonation. Solid beer.

Nice pour, orange yellow with small thin head that went away after a sip. Malt, hops, alcohol, barley, corn, yeast in the aroma. Taste follows, very balanced. Nice hop and pine presence, balanced well with sweetness and a bitter aftertaste. Nice

12 oz can, poured into a shaker pint at ~40 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a beautifully clear dark-honey amber, and forms a massively fluffy slightly off-white head that leaves lacing on the glass just by diminishing. Smell: Glazed doughnut with pepper sprinkled atop, Taste: Thick bread, sweet caramel, slight hints of toffee, white and black pepper, vague suggestions of earth and wood oils. A bit of a floral tinge at the finish. Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium, and sharp. Overall: I enjoyed this marzen. I would drink it again.

A touch sweet and hoppy but a good medium bodied Oktoberfest. A little extra carbonation enhances the slight spice from the hops. The slight caramel malt almost wants to get sticky until the hops crisp it up and add a touch of spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark orange with some red. Big bubbled white head. Looks very thin, I guess I am not used to lagers. Smells of barley, grain. Kind of nice smell as a change of pace. Really clean grain taste in the front, absolutely no aftertaste. This is a good lager, but I am just so unfamiliar with the style at this point.

Cans at the Galaxy Oktoberfest. Pours a light amber with ample head. Aroma is toast, nuts, mild spice, caramel. and toffee with slight dank hops. The taste is similar with the malts really shining through and balancing with the slightly more hopped beer for the style. Moderate carb, light body, easy to drink. Tasty all around.

12oz can from Savor Pint: amber pour, off-white head that disappears quickly leaving a ring. aroma of sweet caramel, cereal. tastes are moderately sweet cereal, little floral, nutty. not my favorite style, but seems like a good one.

Aroma of caramel, fresh bread. Nice clear deep orange colr. Huge tan head, lingers a bit. Creamy rich malt up front. Charred caramel and some notes of toffee. Bitterness fills in quick, slightly off balance as sweetness dissipates quickly. Finish is on the bitter side but not off putting. slightly watery mouth feel. O.k.
